Default WTB: Miata already setup 250hp+

I'm new here and looking to get my 1st Miata. I had an s2k awhile back but want more power and think a 250hp+ Miata would be a decent speed upgrade + be affordable and reliable.

So the year doesn't really matter, although I prefer 99' and up. The lower the miles the better as well. Please let me know if you've got one with turbo or supercharger, info, pics, things that are wrong, dyno chart, etc... I don't care where it is, can have it shipped or drive to get it if needed. I want it to be clean and nice looking. If it has wheels even better (but not necessary).

I can go as high as 12k.

Oh, I will also pay small referral fee if someone finds a good deal and I buy it...

No AUTOMATICS also

So for reasons I would rather not get into here, I might be selling my 99 soon. It has 52.7k miles right now. Had it tuned about 6 months ago, but installed a walbro 255 and manual boost controller since then. It is MUCH faster now and more controllable.

99 Emerald Mica

Mechanical Parts:

FM II 2560 kit
Hydra Nemesis v2.5
ceramic coated manifold and downpipe
Begi ported exhaust manifold, downpipe
Begi upgraded turbo and downpipe attachments to 10mm bolts
Begi ported wastegate
Begi flat decked manifold, and outlet casting
FM Manual and electronic (not hooked up right now) boost controller
Turbo blanket
2.5" stainless exhaust with FM single outlet turbo muffler
5-speed manual
ACT HD clutch
replaced clutch master and slave cylinders late last year
Swapped the OEM 4.3 torsen for a 3.9 torsen. 70mph on highway = 3000 rpm
Walbro 255 fuel pump
Oil filter relocation kit

Suspension:
AYB AGX 4-way adjustables
FM springs
stock swaybars but rears have the Racing Beat end links
Swapped out stock brakes with '01 Sport calipers and rotors (painted silver to match wheels)
Stein's stainless frame rails

Exterior:
Body color front chin spoiler
Body color Moss motors rear spoiler
Stock small side sills

Interior:
Hard Dog sport double diagonal
Pioneer head unit - single disk w/ MP3 but it is a couple years old.
Aftermarket keyless entry system
Single touch power down window controller
Additional courtesy lights (in access panels by center tunnel)
Visor blanks (stock visors removed for more visibility but I still have them)
Voodoo black aluminum shift **** and parking brake

I might head off to the tuner just for a new dyno plot but the old one is in the last couple of pictures. Even with the old fuel pump and VERY conservative timing, I had 248 rwhp and 237 lb-ft of torque.

I sent the seller a link to your message. He can contact you directly if he is still selling the car.

Ok thanks man...I'm guessing that's the link you sent earlier and it's not your car right?

Are there any pics? Whats the price? It sounds good so far...

Thanks for the forward. I don't get on the internet much these days with all the packing going on New ad link with all the info:

1999 Miata with FM II turbo kit, 248 rwhp, 53k miles

By the way, I upgraded the fuel pump to a walbro 255 and have done some pretty extensive retuning since then and added a manual boost controller. The car is now MUCH more stable independent of outside temperature. I could take it to the dyno again for a new plot if absolutely necessary.

no response to pms. Guess he isn't interested in exactly what he is asking for.
